Economic sociology is an approach to analyzing economic phenomena that focuses on the social causes and consequences of economic actions and outcomes. It is a vibrant field of study that exists at the intersection of economics and sociology. These classes will explore the writings of the key thinkers in the development of the field (e.g. Weber, Polanyi, Marx) alongside more contemporary advances in field (e.g. by Coleman, Granovetter, Swedberg, Zelizer).
